Tableau VII. the Robbery

The Stage represents the outside of the Excise Office in Chessel’s Court. At the back, L.C., an archway opening on the High Street. The door of the Excise in wing, R.; the opposite side of the stage is lumbered with barrels, packing-cases, etc. Moonlight; the Excise Office casts a shadow over half the stage. A clock strikes the hour. A round of the City Guard, with halberts, lanterns, etc. enters and goes out again by the arch, after having examined the fastenings of the great door and the lumber on the left. Cry without in the High Street: ’Ten by the bell, and a fine clear night.’ Then enter cautiously by the arch, SMITH and MOORE, with AINSLIE loaded with tools.
